WE promote a wider understanding of
the challenges facing civil aviation in Europe


Airports Council International Europe (ACI EUROPE), founded in 1991, represents the interests of over 500 airports in 45 European countries. Our members facilitate over 90% of commercial air traffic in Europe: 2.3 billion passengers, 21.2 million tonnes of freight and 25.7 million aircraft movements in 2018. In response to the Climate Emergency, in June 2019 our members committed to achieve net zero carbon emissions for operations under their control by 2050, without offsetting.

Our membership is comprised of airport operators of all sizes, along with national airport associations, world business partners and educational establishments. Working together in an active association to ensure effective communication and advocacy with legislative, commercial, technical, environmental, passenger and other interests. The members of ACI EUROPE are competitors in the airport market place and support free and fair competition.

ACI EUROPE is the European trade body for airports and as such, is also the European region of Airports Council International, the only global federation of airport operators. ACI EUROPE is based in Brussels, Belgium and employs a full time staff of 21 people, under the leadership of Director General Olivier Jankovec.
